Picking out a new toilet may not sound that exciting, and you may have never thought about toilet options if you have just used the ones that were already in a house you were renting or bought. However, when you are remodeling or adding on to your house, it is the perfect time to consider new toilet installation. One good reason to consider this is that modern toilets are much more conservative in water usage than older models. Because toilet flushing makes up a significant portion of total water usage, installing a lower usage toilet can save you money.
Here are some of the features that you will need to consider before new toilet installation:
- How tall do you want your toilet? If you have kids, sticking with the standard height is probably a good idea. If you want a more comfortable toilet, consider one that is 2-3 inches higher.
- If water usage is important to you, you could consider a dual flush toilet that allows you to use only the water you need to freshen the bowl. Pressure flush toilets that use air in flushing can lower water usage even more.
- If you have a smaller bathroom, you may want to stick with a round bowl. Some people find the oval shape or elongated toilets more comfortable, so if you have more room, it is something to think about.
- Do you want a one-piece or two-piece toilet? One-piece toilets tend to be easier to clean and some people prefer the look. Most toilets are two pieces.
